Earnings preview: What to look for when Oracle reports Q1 results

The partnership with Microsoft (NYSE: MSFT) is expected to benefit both companies in the enterprise cloud market. The weakness in the hardware and services segments, which have been ongoing for the past two quarters, are likely to dampen results in the to-be-reported quarter.

In the fourth quarter of 2019, revenue and earnings topped estimates. Revenue rose 1% to $11.1 billion while adjusted EPS jumped 23% to $1.16. The topline numbers benefited from strength in the Fusion and NetSuite cloud applications.
